Is it possible to use my raspberry and runs simultaneously a gateway (using dual_chan library for example) and Lora Server ? Instead of sending this data to ttn, I send it locally, in cvs file
I don’t have any idea how to start with !
One concern I do have with this type of configuration is that,
SD cards are slow
Being flash memory, lot’s of writing, “PostgreSQL”, is likely to cause premature failure of the SD card which at this time is not characterized
I wonder if toying with the ODROID-N2 with 4GByte RAM, some time ib the future, as a Gateway, might be worthwhile. It is much faster than a Pi, has more memory and, it runs on a much faster MMC card/chip.
In different countries, there are different rules. In North America, ISM (Industrial, Scientific, Medical) frequency allocation is from 902 MHz to 928 MHz. In the UK ISM is from ??? to ???, it’s different.
In addition, the use of these frequencies is governed by specific legislation and that also differs from country to country.
I gleaned the knowledge about this and more by reading, reading, reading, an re-reading and I’m still reading.
It seems nasty but, you need to do some more reading. Check out the publicly available documents at the LoRa Alliance, most of what you want to know is there, and of course, Semtech has a wealth of reading material.
In a simplified way, a single channel gateway will work, in experimentation, but as it lacks many operational features it probably won’t perform very well.
